odalc.org/donate - Ruth Love (former superintendent of schools in Oakland, Calif. and Chicago, Ill.) speaking about the importance of technology and young people. Love's ability to lead is parallel to the mission and objective of the newly formed non-profit, Oakland Digital Arts & Literacy Center.

The Oakland Digital Arts & Literacy Center (ODALC) inspires the community by providing innovative computer-based training programs and access to digital technology with life changing keynote speakers.

ODALC's goal is simple: Inspire, Train, and Innovate.

Dr. Ruth Love’s passion for education and children draws on a love of learning that goes back generations, to the time of her grandfather Andrew A. Williams, who founded a school for young African Americans.

Love’s love affair with education led her to become a teacher in the Oakland Public Schools and she later served as a school superintendent for both Chicago Public schools and Oakland Public Schools. She assisted in drafting important education legislation, specifically the National Reading Act. Love was instrumental in getting educational programs launched for the King Center in Atlanta, Georgia, and founded an education project called Crossroads, linking students in the U.S. with students in Africa.

Love teaches in the Joint Doctoral Program in Leadership for Educational Equity, a collaboration between the University of California, Berkeley, California State University East Bay, San Francisco State and San Jose State University. She is president of RBL Enterprises LTD.
